Notes & Reviews:
"Orphée", Orpheus, tells the story of Orpheus and Eurydice as a modern heroic epic: It's fast, exhilarating, and full of surprises. Nine dancers and seven singers and instrumentalists dance to the sound of bush drums in front of a lavishly-designed backdrop befi tting a royal son; classical singing merges with pop music; Hip-hop and break-dance meet orchestral music. Hervieu's and Montalvo's "Orphée" is a captivating work that fans of modern dance theatre will simply adore. Music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Yvan Talbot, Claudio Monteverdi, Christoph W. Gluck, Philip Glass and othersNotes & Reviews:
